Lifestyle in Springfield, OH

Prehistoric Indian mound builders were probably the first residents of this area. The city name originated from the rich resources of the land, the picturesque cliffs and the many springs and abundant waters in the area.


Approximately 45 miles west of Columbus and 25 miles northeast of Dayton on the banks of the Mad River near Clark Lake and the Clarence J. Brown Reservoir in Clark County, Springfield is the county seat. The city is perhaps best known as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of agricultural equipment as the home of International Harvester Company (now known as Navistar International). The 4-H Club movement had its beginnings in Springfield. As one of Dayton’s earliest outlying settlements, many different periods of growth have contributed to the varied cultures and economic levels.

Houses from the last century survive with newer homes. Many of the older Victorian dwellings are being artfully and carefully restored by young artisans. You must see the older homes found in the South Fountain Historic District. The historic Westcott House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and features Wright’s prairie-style, low-pitched roof home style – the only one of its kind in Ohio. You can also find many newer homes of brick and frame, more modest in size and price.
